Language Access in Healthcare Settings: A Legal Primer

On behalf of the Health Law Section and its Coordinating Committee on Diversity, we wish to bring to your attention an important upcoming webinar on February 9 at 12:30 pm Central  titled "Language Access in Healthcare Settings:  A Legal Primer."  This program features two nationally-known authorities on the topic:  Dr. Eric Hardt of Boston University School of Medicine and David Hunt, attorney and CEO of Critical Measures. 

Effective language access programs for those who are not proficient in English are not only mandated by federal law, but they also demonstrably improve healthcare outcomes for involved populations.  This webinar is part of the Section’s initiative to increase programming content addressing healthcare issues relevant to minority groups.  Please consider attending the webinar and recommending it to your colleagues. 

Sincerely,

David H. Johnson
